    I like mysteries, and I like paranormal, so gave this one a try. Liked some aspects, but not others. Main character Ellie was an example of that: her humor was often well delivered, and there was a lot of promise for a series, but just out of focus I thought. She could also be annoy...

    This book was one of the best cozy mysteries I have ever read. The writing was fantastic. The mystery was well plotted and had me guessing until the end. It had a great cast of secondary characters. I wasn't sure at the start I was going to like Ellie. She is, after all, a con-...

    My first cozy mystery! I thought it was super cute and fun despite how long it took me to read! I actually never figured out who did it until the very end and frankly I didn't expect that! I am looking forward to second book due out this fall and am hoping it picks up where it left off...

    This book was cute. Having a major paranormal twist to it was a plus for me. Eleanor Wilde works as a psychic so she can afford to pay for her sisters care. When she's asked to go to England to get rid of a ghost by a wealthy man she can't resist. Even though they both know she is a fa...

    First in the series. I thought this was a fun new twist on the usual paranormal cozy mystery. The main character, Eleanor, is not a physic at all, but pretends to be one to make a living and support her sister. Despite the fact that at heart, Ellie is a con artist, she's still incre...

    It's not often that I find a mystery that I just don't want to put down for anything, but Seances are for Suckers by Tamara Berry definitely falls into that category. I would've read it all in less than a day, but I had to eat and sleep eventually. I loved Ellie, a.k.a. Madame Eleanor....

    This is one of the best cozies I have read! I had my doubts at first because initially the main character, Eleanor, came off as a bit unlikable for a cozy character. She is a psychic swindler with some harsh world views, but as the story progresses the author adds layers and complexiti...
